Plant a Row for the Hungry
The Plant a Row for the Hungry program is a people-helping-people initiative to provide hungry families with fresh, nutritious produce. Community members are encouraged to donate their surplus garden produce to help feed those in need.
The success of Plant a Row hinges on community involvement. Home gardeners, farmers, schools, places of worship, youth and community organizations, and area businesses can help make a difference for their neighbors in need by planting a row of seed and donating their surplus to Second Harvest and other local hunger-relief organizations in Spokane and North Idaho. Click on the links below for a complete list of donation sites and times.

Farms and Orchards
Farms and orchards can also plant an extra row to benefit Eastern Washington and North Idaho residents at risk of hunger. Because of the amount of food they grow, farmers and growers can make a big difference with just one row of fruit trees or vegetable plants aiding in the fight against hunger.
Support Local Agriculture
Plant a Row also works with local farmers markets to collect unsold, wholesome produce for hunger-relief efforts. Donation bins are available to accept produce during market hours. Support your local farmer and give to those in need. A list of participating farmers markets can be found here.
Please remember to fill out a Plant a Row receipt with every donation. Tracking pounds is critical for expanding our great program. Your donation will be weighed and you will receive a copy of the receipt, giving you a $1.50 per pound tax deduction. If the donation site does not have receipts, please e-mail your donation pounds to Kate Burke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
